Sentencing of disgraced MP Chris Huhne and ex-wife Vicky Pryce: live blog
11:43am Monday 11th March 2013 in News
Disgraced former MP Chris Huhne and his ex-wife Vicky Pryce were today sentenced to eight months' jail each for perverting the course of justice.
Former Cabinet minister Huhne and economist Pryce have been warned by Mr Justice Sweeney to be under no illusion about what punishment they face at Southwark Crown Court.
Pryce, aged 60, was found guilty last week of perverting the course of justice by taking speeding points for Huhne, 58, in 2003. The former energy secretary pleaded guilty.
Perverting the course of justice carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment, with an average sentence of around 10 months.
